28-01-2009 15:17

However, I would argue there is NO EXCUSE for crimes against humanity.

Speech of Craig Murray to Students Occupying Cambridge University Law Faculty

28-01-2009 03:03

Despite being denied proper access to the Law Faculty building, ex-ambassador Craig Murray spoke and answered questions from the entrance for over 45 minutes. He spoke on the US war in Central Asia for control over natural gas pipelines, Lord Taylor of Blackburn and other war profiteers, and anti-Muslim propaganda in the media. Murray explicitly supported several key demands of the occupation as reasonable: that the university withdraw investment from the arms trade; that there be bursaries for Palestinian students; and that the university condemn Israel's recent actions towards Gaza.

Global Military Bloc: NATO's Drive Into Asia

27-01-2009 19:46

With the sixtieth anniversary summit of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to occur on April 3-4, the world should take note of how far from its original area of operations this, history's first, international military bloc has expanded in the interim since its creation in 1949.

That attacks on the capitals of US finance and government blamed by Washington on nineteen perpetrators from Arab nations would be used as justification for global and permanent military operations from the Strait of Gibraltar to the Philippines archipelago and from the Indian Ocean to the Caribbean Sea is, then, perhaps not to be wondered at.

Israel Killed Everything but the Will to Resist

26-01-2009 18:46

People of Gaza celebrating the end of Israeli military invasion
Three weeks of Israeli terror caused about 1400 deaths, over 5500 injured (many seriously), vast destruction throughout Gaza, and Physicians for Human Rights warning that large numbers of wounded may die because hospitals are overloaded and lack basic supplies. Yet Palestinians endure. Their spirit is unbowed and unbroken. Hamas is more popular than ever, and world outrage sustains them.

Names and Photos of Israeli War Criminals in Gaza

26-01-2009 11:50

I have decided to publish some names and photos of the Israeli military personnel who participated in the so-called "Operation Cast Lead". I consider each person who took part in this IOF and each one whose name appears in this report as a war criminal who should be requested by an international court of justice.

American Jewish Professor: Israel is committing a holocaust in Gaza

25-01-2009 21:40

I think Israel, as a number of commentators pointed out, is becoming an insane state. And we have to be honest about that. While the rest of the world wants peace, Europe wants peace, the US wants peace, but this state wants war, war and war. In the first week of the massacres, there were reports in the Israeli press that Israel did not want to put all its ground forces in Gaza because it was preparing attacks on Iran. Then there were reports it was planning attacks on Lebanon. It is a lunatic state.

Obama, King and Kennedy: Empire and the “End” of Racism

25-01-2009 18:31

Kennedy was an imperialist and a Cold Warrior. Obama is the 21st century equivalent of Kennedy – a smart Hawk whose basic commitment is to the existence and furtherance of capitalist imperialism. Kennedy sent the young and hopeful he’d inspired to die and carry out imperial genocide in Viet Nam.
Obama will do the same in Afghanistan, and, perhaps, Iran.
